Google Launches Youtube Channel for Kenya 2013 Elections


With just 30 days to the March 4th general elections, global search engine google, has launched the Kenya elections Youtube channel that will create content from across youtube enabling Kenyans to access the latest political news commentaries and campaigns. Google expects the channel will help the electorate connect with their leaders as well as empowering people with information that will generate debate.

According to Google Kenya, media filmmakers and creatives will produce, distribute and analyse the information. This launch comes in the back of the unveiling of its elections hub where voters, journalists and politicians can easily track news, trends and information related to the elections. Watch KTN Streaming LIVE from Kenya 24/7 on http://www.ktnkenya.tv

The 2013 elections in Kenya will be the most closely watched in living memory. With the explosion in social media that has occurred since the last elections in 2007/08, the Kenyan elections can be brought to the world, in close to real time, via YouTube for the first time ever.

The YouTube channel will also host the livestreams of Kenya’s presidential debate series, while you can monitor and participate in the conversation using the most popular hashtags in the Kenyan twittersphere.
